Lukas Podolski has struck something of an unusual bet with prospective opponent Kevin Grosskreutz ahead of Arsenal's Champions League group stage clash against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday evening.
As reported by the Daily Express, such a wager does not concern money as that would obviously breach important rules and regulations but rather a certain food I expect you are all rather familiar with - a kebab.
Yes that's right, a kebab. While such a mundane and frankly bizarre prize may seem fairly random at first glance, there is a degree of logic to its selection by the two international teammates.
German international Grosskreutz - who, like Podolski, collected a World Cup winners medal as part of Joachim Loew's 25-man squad in Brazil this summer - was reportedly charged with assault back in May after allegedly hurling a doner at a Cologne fan during a night out with teammates.
Indeed, certain speculation has even suggested that the loser of said bet will be forced to consume the meat-filled delicacy - one that we assume is not a traditional staple of the modern footballer's diet - in the city of Cologne itself.
Arsenal injury woe
On a slightly more serious note, Arsenal have several injury worries to contend with ahead of their meeting with Jurgen Klopp's side at the atmospheric Signal Iduna Park.
Striker Yaya Sanogo is likely to miss the contest with a hamstring problem, while right-back Mathieu Debuchy - signed from Newcastle this summer in order to fill the void left by Bacary Sagna's disappointing defection to title rivals Manchester City - is expected to miss up to three months with an ankle problem.
The French defender's absence has been compounded by a back problem that has prevented Nacho Monreal from making the trip to Germany and Wenger will be hoping that Calum Chambers recovers sufficiently from a recent bout of tonsillitis in order to lineup alongside Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker.
If Chambers does not make it, then Arsenal could hand a first senior start to Spanish youth international Hector Bellerin.
While such an occasion could prove quite unnerving for your average young player, Wenger has gone on record to suggest that the 19-year-old is confident and ready to feature for the first-team.
